While one of the last PAL regions to receive a release of the game, Namco Bandai Games Australia in collaboration with Nippon Ichi Software America today confirmed that Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is now available for purchase in the region.
Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS platform, Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan is a dungeon crawling RPG that emphasizes careful exploration and character growth just as much as battle. Different from other titles in this popular sub-genre, Etrian Odyssey puts total control in the player’s hands in two unique ways. One is the system that uses the 3DS’ stylus and touch screen that puts the player in charge of mapping the dungeon. Part of the joy of dungeon crawlers is the thrill of exploring new dungeons and Etrian Odyssey takes that joy to a whole new level.
Secondly, Etrian Odyssey features a party system of ten different types that each have their own unique skill trees. This allows players to create the exact party that they want, as well as keeps the game interesting by allowing players to change their party set-up at will. Players can also unlock sub-classes on their party members for further customization and versatility. In addition to this, the title makes use of QR codes and the StreetPass system to allow for bonus content, as well as for players to exchange characters.
